Our Custom Kydex AIWB Holster is intended for maximum concealment. With our minimalist single clip design, the AIWB Holster is slim with no extra material to add excess bulk or weight. This holster comes with a full sweat shield to keep hard edges from the body. Our .093" material covers all the essentials, including the magazine release and trigger, as any holster should. Also featured is our Adjustable Military Grade Rubber Retention System- featuring screws pre-coated in a shock absorbing thread weld- that allows you to adjust the retention with a Philip's head screwdriver. All holster edges are rounded and smooth for Comfortable all day Concealed Carry at the Appendix Position. Also featured is the Grip Concealment Claw.

This holster is built for safety and made to last a lifetime. All Dara products are covered under a no BS Lifetime Warranty! For more information visit our FAQ page or our Inside the Waistband Holster Breakdown. Our recommended specs: Mid ride with a straight draw. These provide the most concealable and concealable set up. Do NOT pair a low ride with a reverse cant angle, as the grip of your carry gun could become buried. For a full grip, select high ride height, with a straight draw.

How to Order:

Start by choosing your firearm model. We have two drop down menus that list each Manufacturer and Model in alphabetical order. If you don't see your firearm, we may not have that model available just yet. You can contact Customer Support to see if your model is available.

Holster Color:
The next step is choosing your Holster Color. We do provide swatches on the order form, but larger pictures can be found on our FAQ page here.

Draw Hand:
Choose how you'd like to carry the holster.

Belt Attachment:
Choose your desired belt attachment from the drop down menu, along with the corresponding belt size. 1.5" is the most common belt size. 1.75" is most common for tactical belts, and 2"-2.25" is common for duty belts.

Ride Height:
This is how your holster and firearm will sit in relation to the belt, vertically. A low ride height put the grip of the gun lower in the belt line. Be careful with a low ride height, as the grip of the firearm can become buried easily with a reverse cant angle. A mid ride height, which is the most common, will put the top of the belt in line with where the trigger guard meets the frame. The high ride height will put the holster higher up on the belt, giving you a full grip. To see the ride height and cant angle chart, scroll through the product pictures. PLEASE NOTE: The Grip Concealment Claw will work with a mid or high ride height, not a low ride height.

Cant Angles:
We offer many different cant angles conducive to every carry method. If you plan to carry at 12 o'clock, you'll want to choose a straight draw (0° cant). The forward cant angle tilts the grip away from the draw hand. A reverse cant angle tilts the towards your draw hand. PLEASE NOTE: the Grip Concealment Claw will only work with slight cant angles, or no cant at all.

Custom Notes / Photo Upload:
This is where you'll want to bring any customizations up. We need to know about switched magazine release buttons, extended mag release buttons, suppressor height sights and other such modifications.

    Best Holster EVER!

    Published by Matt Brandt on 23rd Jun 2019

    I’ve ordered 3 different holsters (for different needs) from Dara now, this was my second. I’ve been fed up with bulky products from other brands that overprint and are uncomfortable. I wear this every day with my Shield .45 and it’s ridiculously comfortable. I have an OWB version as well for hiking/backpacking trips and that one is amazing too! Retention, style, comfortability, and reliability is

    Loved it!

    Published by Matt B on 13th Jun 2019

    Perfect fit, easily concealable. I ordered the olive drab Shield .45 w/Viridian R5 ECR and it’s AMAZING! Compatible with multiple clips/hooks and the magnet for the instant on laser is a must. Comfortable, concealable, and cost efficient. I liked it so much I ordered an OWB version as well.

    Quality holster with good light options

    Published by Buyer on 11th Apr 2019

    I had a lot of trouble finding a decent holster that allowed me to carry my Olight Pl-2 Valkyrie. This product solved my problem. Well made and sturdy. Overall a high quality holster.

    I ordered a holster for the Springfield XDS Mod 2 with a Viridian Reactor Gen2 laser as it is difficult to find a holster for this combination. I was very pleased with the final product when I received it. The holster is well made; has good retention of the pistol, has a very strong clip and has the claw feature that helps draw in the handgun grip to help with concealment. The Viridian Reactor series laser requires the holster to feature a magnet built into the holster. The magnet turns off the Viridian laser when the pistol is holstered and turns on the laser when the pistol is drawn. The holster and Viridian laser combination works great, allowing the pistol to be drawn from the holster immediately turning on the laser with no additional actions by the user. Overall the holster more than met my expectations and I will be sure to recommend Dara Holsters for custom holster orders.

    A versatile holster

    Published by Alfred on 14th Feb 2019

    It's hard to find a great holster that fits your firearm with light but this one fit my Sig P320c with light better than I expected. Holds my firearm in place with hardly any resistance when the weapon is pulled. A definite must have.

    Superb AIWB Holster

    Published by Al on 4th Feb 2019

    This holster is very well made. Super fit and finish. All smooth edges. Perfect retention and very fast draw with my Glock 19 with the TLR-7. Very comfortable to wear for extended amounts of time. Never pinches or digs. Not bulky. I will purchase again!

    took a chance exceded expectations

    Published by daniel on 5th Jan 2019

    i usually wear my g26 in my pocket, but unfortunately i couldn't find a holster once i got a streamlight tlr-6 no one makes a holster for it. then add to that me being left handed....

    but on to good things i got the light bearing AIWB Holster with the following options:
    Carbon Fiber Texture (looks great in person)
    *mid height
    *0 to 15 reverse cant (helps to find best angle tor aiwb)
    *grip claw (pulls the grip to the waist, worth it)
    * 1.5" tuckable (got it just in case, plan on buying regular too just in case)
    my last holsters are desantis superfly for pocket, and dale fricke Archangel for my aiwb. i

    overall i'm really happy with the dara holster. i will admit to being highly skeptical. i saw it on amazon and using google. i got it here custom from this website. it is more comfortable with my body shape. 5'11" 280lb. wile sitting, it digs in my stomach and leg a bit, but much less than other holsters. wile walking i dont notice it at all.

    i hate reviewing products but felt this company deserved the help. buy it you wont regret it.

    Dara custom light-bearing appendix holster for Ruger LC9s & Crimson Trace laser.

    Published by Joe Nottoli on 19th Dec 2018

    I got it and have been "certifying" it for a few days (unload, cocked, safety off gun - looking for NO trigger "snaps"). All seems well. It's well-made, solid, attractive (carbon fiber look), and comfortable. I have some trouble getting it on (the rounded, center belt clip and side "wing"), and it seems to work better with webbed belts vs. leather. I guess I'll need to get used to the on/off aspects of it - it's still new to me. It would be good if the belt clip could be replaced with the side "hook" I've seen on some of your holsters - but that's probably not possible to engineer. I'll keep working with it. Again, all seems well. Good job! Merry Christmas.

    Light bearing aiwb

    Published by Joe on 12th Dec 2018

    Super pleased. Its hard for me to find a iwb holster for my xds due to the viridian r5 laser, let alone an aiwb. Got the conceal claw on it as well. I wore it for a 6 hour drive today no issues whatsoever. Im usually on the fence about mass produced holsters but no printing and as long as you wear an undershirt no pinching/digging.

    Glock 43 with viridian Reactor R5 laser

    Published by Rampier on 9th Dec 2018

    I spend weeks looking for a Glock 43 appendix holster that was compatible with the Viridian Reactor series and a claw. And there it was Dara Holsters making it possible not only now I have the laser to turn on as soon as I draw but now i can conceal the +3 mag extension attached with light shirts ready to go. Overall quality is superb, curved clip is a plus, production time was great.
